Joseph Henry, Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellowship, Department of Drawings and Prints

Join one of the organizers of the current Robert Wood Johnson, Jr. Gallery exhibition, Light and Tone: Selections from the Department of Drawings and Prints, to learn how modern artists such as Edvard Munch and Josef Albers employed woodcut and wood engraving techniques to create experimental renderings of water. Through examples of works on view, you’ll gain an understanding of how the jagged fibers of wood blocks can transform into abstracted depictions of oceans and other aquatic bodies in a modernist update of the seascape genre.Meet in Gallery 690 (Robert Wood Johnson, Jr. Gallery).
